BOYISH


Recently i've been taking my style inspiration from mens street fashion as its so insanely good. I absolutely love the boyish, preppy look with layers made up from oversized shirts with turned up collars, jumpers, printed neck scarfs, shaggy long cardigans topped with a boyfriend coat, along with skinnies or relaxed baggy hip sitting pants, statement socks and a pair of loafers or sneakers finished off with a leather hand wallet or side satchel. Beanies and Fedoras are also looking perfectly on point.

I never really appreciated mens fashion until very recently due to my university module which was based on re-creating a double page spread of the mens lifestyle and fashion magazine '10men'. 


 Obviously research had to be done into the factors that make a successful mens fashion magazine and what unique codes and conventions different magazines have. After spending over £30 on magazines such as Homme +, 10men, Dazed and Confused, Esquire, Wonderland etc I think I have so much more love for mens style than womens. I'd much rather wear a pair of distressed loose fitting jeans, printed shirt tucked in, bold socks with thick leather brogues and a manly doubled breasted blazer.

  4. I've been obsessed with mens clothes too - after LCM i have been looking high and low for more male street style blogs and inspiration! there's something so much more relaxed looking about mens fashion. I saw Jamie Campell Bowers layering two coats and wished I could wear Burberry Men too. I loove all the looks here - the guy with the camera and backwards baseball cap has it spot on! :)
